Although it was hard work, I really loved every minute of the CELTA course. My tutors were always on hand to help and took real time and effort to ensure the course was as informative and varied as possible. I found that the frequent evaluative feedback from both them and my peers was particularly helpful in my progression, along with watching experienced teachers teach. I have just finished teaching at a summer school, organised through the Bristol centre, and I feel that the CELTA equipped me well for this role. Since this and the majority of jobs available are for teaching young learners, I think it would be beneficial to take some more time to consider the impact of this on lesson planning during a future course.
